Refusal, cancellation or suspension of services especially holds true to issues with spam or any script abuse. Another example of refusal of service is if a customer becomes very unreasonable, unprofessional, extremely difficult to work with or threatening. Said customerâ€™s account will be suspended and we will recommend to the customer to find a new host. A backup of the account(s) will be provided.
Resource Abuse Policy (RAP)
Any website on our shared servers that uses a high amount of server resources (CPU, memory usage, and network resources) will be given an option to pay for a dedicated/VPS server. The abuse and misuse of system resources is a serious problem, and T-Rex Hosting does not tolerate it. Accounts on a shared server must be shared with other users, so we must limit how much of the CPU and memory that can be used by any one account.
In all fairness, we cannot allow one or two clients to use all of the system resources on a shared machine and have all other clients suffer because of it. Excessive CPU & memory usage by one or more clients causes extreme slowness in all areas: MySQL, Email, HTTP and more. If the CPU & memory usage by a few clients gets out of hand, all sites hosted on the machine will return errors and not be accessible in any way.
AVERAGE SERVER RESOURCE LIMITS
Memory usage may not exceed 15% per domain/file/application.
CPU usage may not exceed 15% per domain/file/application.
Apache connections may not exceed 40 connections.
20 MySQL maximum user connections allowed.
200 emails per hour, per domain.
There are special exceptions to these rules to be determined at the time we discover abuse. There are different combinations of usage that can create problems and other special cases. At any given time a server is unstable and an account is found to be the cause, we reserve the right to suspend the account to keep the server online and operating normally. If the usage is an increasing trend, we recommend the user invest in a dedicated/VPS server so the website can grow at a normal rate without restriction.If you have any question please fell free to contact us.
